times of testing

I know I'm going through a time of testing... my 8 year old daughter's cat died last week, my roof leaks, my church is having serious issues, there's an error on my credit report that I've been getting the run around in trying to fix, and, working nights, I don't get nearly enough sleep. I know there's something God wants to teach me, but what?

Until I figure it out, I keep listening to a song called "Blessed be Your Name" written by Matt Redman.

*Blessed Be Your Name *

Blessed be Your name
In the land that is plentiful
Where your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be your name

Blessed be Your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

Every blessing you pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

Every blessing you pour out I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord Blessed be your name

I love that song. How interesting that it was playing in my mind tonight, well parts of it were, and I was wondering how I would remember the words. Here they were as a link to your testimony tonight. Blessed be the name of the Lord!!!
